When you use Google Search’s I’m feeling lucky you can get some funny results.
Google Search H4x0r edition
The above H4x0r edition of Google Search can be found by using the keywords “google l33t” and clicking the I’m feeling lucky button.
Hongkiat lists 11 keywords which get you some results you might not have seen before.
SkreemR is a search enigne which lets you find audio files on the internet. You don’t need to install any software, just enter some keywords and let SkreemR find the songs your after.
SkreemR is a search engine; none of the songs on SkreemR are hosted on our servers. SkreemR crawls the internet for audio tracks and then provides the information here for you to listen, download, or find out more about audio that you are interested in.
You can use SkreemR to add audio files to your facebook profile and the SkreemR team continues to improve and expand the site’s features, so hopefully it will soon include some sort of playlist feature as well.
I found the site to be quite responsive, returning a decent amount of results.

With FindSounds you can easily do a search for particular sounds on the internet.
FindSounds.com is a free site for finding sound effects and musical instrument samples on the Web. It is a Web search engine, like Google and AltaVista, but with a focus on sounds. It provides powerful features, yet is simple and easy to use, and suitable for all ages. Note to parents: audio files containing obscenities are filtered out so this site is safe for children.

You can search for AIFF, AU and WAVE files of specific quality and size in many different categories. Give it a try!
